Teen punkette Riff Randall (P.J. Soles) has one abiding fantasy: to meet the dreamy Ramones and get them to perform one of her songs. Standing in her way is Principal Togar (Warhol star Mary Woronov), who runs Vince Lombardi High like a despot—until the boys from Forest Hills lead a student body putsch, and rock the school down to its foundations. A tribute to the revolutionary power of rock n’ roll radio and after-school bedroom sexual awakening, replete with weed-scented daydreams of Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee, and Marky serenading “I Want You Around.”
